Royer, Ida J. (8 DEC 1850 - 8 JUL 1918)
Mrs. W. G. Royer, nee Ida Jane Gardner, died on Monday afternoon, July 8, 1918, at her home in this city (Owen, Clark County, Wis.). She was born Dec. 8, 1850, and in the year 1877 married W. G. Royer. Twenty-seven years ago Mr. and Mrs. Royer moved to this city and since that time have made this their home. For the past two weeks she has been failing in health and on Monday afternoon a change came Which weakened her so much that she passed away about six o'clock. She is survived by a husband and two daughters, Mrs. J. C. Andrews of this city and Mrs. Chichester OF Chippewa Falls. Mrs. Royer was a woman of unusual qualities of mind and heart, admired by a large circle of friends in this community. Those who have known her as a wife and a mother testify to the splendid maturity of which her life gave promise. Her untimely death causes sadness to many hearts in this community.
Funeral services were held Thursday at the St. Katherine's Mission, where a large number of friends gather to pay their last sad rites to the departed one. Rev. Charles Linley of Christ Church, Eau Claire, officiated. Interment was made in the Riverside Cemetery.
Those from away who attended the funeral were: Mr. and Mrs. Chichester of Chippewa Falls, and son John of Great Lakes, Ill., and Mr. and Mrs. Wrigglesworth of Eau Claire.
The bereaved family is indeed grateful to the neighbors and friends who assisted them and extended sympathy during their time of trouble.
